anybody else in america and that's the challenge that we have. >> senator john mccain has tweeted he's dispossibilitied he didn't speak about syria tonight and didn't spend a lot of time op international issues, is that something you wanted to hear tonight? >> you know what i really wanted to hear? i wanted to hear how we're both going to work together. what i wanted as kind of a first priority, the first priority of where we currently are today with the 16 trillion dollar deficit, a pox on both houses if you don't pass a budget. i want to see a budget passed and i want to see something that's balanced, balanced. and you've got a senate where how ironic, he's got the ceo of apple sitting up with the first lady and the last time the democrats in the senate passed a budget, the ipad wasn't even introduced yet and now they're on what, their third version, the mini ipad even. you can't get everything he wants to got done without first laying out a plan. >> the american people heard the president,heard the response of senator marco rubio and the tea party response we put on gretawire.com
to climate change like john mccain and joe lieberman worked on a few years ago. >> it may have been good enough for mccain and lieberman but not today's lunatic congressional republicans, many who are sh. caller: lls of the fossil fuel industry. the president was challenged today: >> here's why. in the past five years barasso has received $5 million from the facile fuel industry. 90% of the time, he voted in their interest. very helpful senator. he sits on both the senate energy and environmental committees. faced with that kind of opposition, the president says if he has to, he'll by pass congress and issue an executive action. >> if congress won't act soon to protect future generations i will. i will direct. [ applause ] >> i will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take now and in the future to reduce pollution prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. >> the president did the same on another big progressive issue raising the minimum wage, beating the republicans to the economic
. chris, what was that shout out to john mccain and joe lieberman about? that seemed to make john mccain unhappy? >> he did his patented grimace smile. it was a standard cap and trade bill along the framework of what would later be passed by the house of representatives after president and killed in the senate because no republics republicans would support it. john mccain and joe lieberman in three sessions introduced bills to put a cap on carbon and that amount would have gone down year for year. what democrats tried to pass in 2009 and could not get done. it was a reminder to the republicans that there was a remarkable and in my time covering politics, lurch backwards. newt gingrich was haunted by sitting with nancy pelosi endorsing it. john mccain favored cap and trade. all of that has been undone and destroyed as the republican party has put this in this shrinking denial of the political strain. i think the president was trying to point that out and that's why john mccain felt uncomfortable. >> sitting between two democratic senators and wishing he wasn't. he said i am not going to u
john mccain, dijo a telemundo, aunque no lo suficiente, la frontera estÁ mas asegura que hace algunos aÑos pero dijo que obvio que arizona, es el corredor para los narcotraficantes y para la inmigraciÓn ilegal que llega a los estados unidos. >>> es muy peligroso. >>> el dueÑo de esta propiedad fronteriza dice que los Últimos 12 meses ha ingresado por aquÍ 29 camionetas repletas de droga de mÉxico a estados unidos la mÁs reciente hace 2 semanas. aquÍ las personas que traficaban la mercancÍa, cortaron esta malla metÁlica y derrumbaron esta columna para que in ingresaran 23 camionetas de drogas. esto es punto y aparte. el debate continÚa en washington. efraÍn espera con optimismo. >>> pueden hacer lo que sea necesario pero que aprueben la reforma. >>> en phoenix arizona. rogelio mora-tagle, telemundo. >>> y las 4.000 personas que se encuentran abordo de un crucero donde hay caces de comida y acceso limitado a los baÑos. esperan llegar maÑana, a alabama, para poner fin a esta pesadilla que comenzÓ el domingo, el carnival, es remolcado luego de quedar ba radio en el golfo de
no evidence of. you have john mccain coming to chuck hagel's defense. >> good for john mccain. >> good for john mccain. you have stepped over the line. >> there's been a pattern with the hagel debate of people going beyond legitimate public debate. we saw it on the charges of anti-semitism. now illegal money or whatever. there's a legitimate debate to have about chuck hagel or any other nominee. this is way past that. but there's an irony here. hagel, in part, got this nomination in order to bridge the partisan divide. it was supposed to be someone who would appeal to republicans. instead he gets reported out with a straight party-line vote. no republicans supporting him. this cannot be what anyone in washington intended. >> i know. john heilemann, i hate to keep bringing him up because i hate bringing up somebody simply for bad behavior, but i'm absolutely flummoxed by ted cruz's short-term and long-term political strategy. you know, mark halperin told me before he got sworn in, he was a very smart guy, a bright guy, a harvard lawyer. i just don't -- this is a guy that could have such
change, like the one john mccain and joe lieberman work on a few years ago. but if congress will not act soon to protect future generations, i will. [applause] i will direct my cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. >> some environmentalists were disappointed he did not go further and call for carbon emissions cuts, and other issues. >> in my view, climate change is where necessity and opportunity meet. we have to do something. we see what is happening all around us. this also is the pathway to the future, it would seem to me, in terms of the economy, other aspects challenging the united states. if we were to address climate change the way we address the challenge of something like world war ii, and we said we have to do something about this, we are going to put people to work, we are going to do research and development, conservation, we are going to whether rise buildings from coast-to-coast, the united s
gillibrand will be sitting with john mccain. joe manchin will be sitting with republican mark kirk. democratic senator mark begich of attorney general will sit with a republican congressman from his own state, don young. in illinois it will be a democratic and republican congress. sitting with republican rodney davis. in virginia they're doing the same thing. secretary john kerry now, in virginia it will be democratic senator tim kaine with randy forbes, president interacting there with members of the supreme court. ruth bader ginsburg, steven breyer. >> probably the most important vote for president obama was right there, the chief justice, who voted for the health care plan. >> that's right. toes are the president's two appointees to the supreme court there. this is sonia sotomayor, two of the unheralded but very, very important accomplishments of his first time, the confirmation of those two supreme court justices, sonia sotomayor, of course, the first latina supreme court justice in the nation's history. the president now greeting joint chiefs, including ray odierno who is the
, at the top of the screen. he's designated as a member of the cabinet, the white house chief of staff. john mccain, lindsey graham, they're always together. not surprisingly. they're good friends, allies on so many of these issues. this is a moment where so many members of the house and the senate, democrats and republicans, some actually try to sit together to demonstrate that there can be some bipartisan cooperation. we'll see what kind of reaction the president of the united states gets when he utters some of the famous words that he will be saying. there you see, by the way, also behind dennis mcdonough, you see eric holder, the attorney general right there. but we did see susan rice, the ambassador to the unit, john boehner, the speaker, joe biden, the vice president will be presiding over this session. chris cuomo is watching it. as soon as the members of the cabinet come in, the president will be introduced. >> thank you very much. let's come back to our minds over here. you're giving me ideas for what you want to talk about. we hear from the white house that this speech will be effective b
of all, you see senators lindsey graham and john mccain. two of the biggest headaches for this president, especially going into the second term, but sitting between them tonight, you will see senator chuck schumer, the number three democrat in the house. he wants to craft an immigration compromise with republicans. they're his two closest allies on that. so, they will be down there together. and also, i see, out of camera view off to the side, we have, for the first time in american history, two african-american senators. both recently appointed to fill vacancies. tim scott of south carolina, senator will cowan of massachusetts. and they are democrat and republican and they are sitting together also on the side. but for the most part, they are back to their battle stations here. >> another simple of bipartisan unity, about 40 members of congress will be wearing orange pins, that stands for the no labels movement. democrats and republicans who are committed, they say, to reaching across party lines in order to get something done. about 40 or them wearing those pips tonight. >> just a litt
in 2010. it was also very effective for john mccain at the end of the campaign. it does resonate with the republican base. and actually with some swing voters on income equality and redistribution of wealth. >> well, i want to ask what is the opinion of rand paul up on the hill? he is not going away. i remember going to those campaign rallies when his father was running, the guy that had the broadest coalition and the coalition that the gop needs for the future was rand paul. young hippies for vermont. there's nothing wrong with hippies i was a former hippy. >> these are hipsters now. >> there is energy behind that rand paul message which rand paul has adopted. >> i think i ask the question of the gop moving forward. mitch mcconnell originally tried to beat paul. he is the opposite of the establishment. the establishment has warmed to him publicly because they're forced to. i know internally they do not care for him he's kind of become the new jim demint. he's a thorn in their side. he's the type of guy that would worry about the 30-hour rule. the filibuster. that you could sink
on the chuck hagel vote on armed services. when john mccain comes in as a critic and ends up having to defend chuck hagel because of the very sharp attack from ted cruz. let's watch. >> we saw with his nomination something truly extraordinary which is the government of iran formally and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. i would suggest to you that is unprecedented to see a foreign nation like iran publicly celebrating a nomination. >> i want to put on the record that this senator feels like that senator cruz has gone over the line. he basically has impugned the patriotism of the nominee. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he's served his country, and no one on this committee at anytime should impugn his character or his integrity. >> so, chuck todd, ted cruz has made a mark already. this isn't the first instance? >> no, he's not. i've been thinking about this, this new -- if you want to say this is more evidence. but you know, i remember a young rick santorum coming in breaking some traditions. >> boy, did he. >> breaking when he did this, three, four, five years lat
that even john mccain who lamb basted hagel a week ago came to the senator's defense. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he has served his country and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> that's what cruz was doing. and john boehner couldn't stick to the script today for the softer, gentler, kinder gop. he told reporters at a breakfast briefing that obama doesn't have -- this is the new phrase. he doesn't have the guts to cut spending. today more republican intransigents are holding up again by demanding the speaker -- actually harry reid from nevada come up with 60 votes to move forward the vote. and senator rand paul put a hold on president obama's pick. joining me now is salon's joan walsh and washington post's dana milbank. they can't beat these people so they're doing this obstructing. they're trying to smear this guy. they know he's going to be secretary of defense. there is absolutely no purpose in what cruz is doing except trying to move he's more obnoxious than neocons are. they're just messing around with the government of t
for secretary of state. she was standing about three feet away from lindsey graham and john mccain two of the people who were hardest on her for the benghazi matter. we didn't see any interchange at all. usually they studiously ignore each other. >> i did john mccain and lindsey graham hug in an almost unseemly fashion. leon panetta the out going secretary of defense. they have been two of the most critical of the nominee to be his successor, chuck hagel. it is date night too. i want to point out that. the democratic senator from colorado two years ago proposed, judy, that members instead of just democrats sitting with democrats and republicans... this year i think he's doing it with the republican senator from alaska, that peoplec with people from the other party and across the aisle. several members have done it. i think mccain and gram seem to be a couple of them. >> they share the popcorn. woodruff: that's a tradition they started a few years ago. a a number of members picked it up. it seemed to fade. >> it was done right after the gabrielle giffords. >> woodruff: she's here tonigh

. here's a tweet that came in frun john mccain. he wrote disappointed but not surprised for the president to not address to the 60,000 dead in syria. jerry on the republican line. caller: good evening. i read an article about not just any federal agency but the i.r.s. setting the rule for the affordable care act. among other things children don't have to be covered. what i would like to ask any democrat who is hearing my words that will be on your line later tonight is, do you think it is good policy that the internal revenue service is writing the rules for our health care? does anyone out there to say yes, i want the i.r.s. to come in between me and my doctor or my children's health care and their doctor. it is insane. if the president wants to have job creation in this country, one, of course is economic growth and not having regulations to stifle it but repeal obamacare. that is the single biggest job killer out there. let's repeal obamacare and have job growth and then i think that will get our economy back on its feet again. but obama, the notion that the i.r.s. is coming between th

that would be an unprecedented effort. when john mccain points that out, you know, seriously. >> huh? >> stephanie: senator carl levin said their demands are beyond the scope of what has been asked traditionally of former nominees. a point echoed by john mccain. >> eh? >> did i or didn't i? wait. what day is it? who am i for and against? who am i mad at this week so i can choose my position on who i have a grudge against? >> no, sir one should impugn his character and integrity. they were accusing him of lying. >> of colluding with iran against the interests of the american people. i mean dick cheney went on -- i guess it was a fox interview. can't go anywhere else. but he was -- his big thing was that the president's choices including hagel are a specific strategy to endanger the american people and undermine be. it's doing it. >> stephanie: he can talk because he served so patrioticically in vietnam. >> no terrorist things happened on cheney's watch though. >> you're nothing. >> nothing bad happened. >> no wars of choice. we made sure that our soldiers had everything they needed wh
